In 1860, Prefect Abdon Béchade had a castle built at Baleyssagues, a stone’s throw from Duras, as he remained very much attached to the landscapes of his birthplace.
A high-ranking Republican official during the second half of the nineteenth century, mayor of the municipality and district councillor, he came up with the idea of this haven of peace to which he would enjoy returning for rest and revitalization.
Built by local artisans following his own plans, the building is located at the heart of a 120 hectare domain which includes 30 hectares of vineyard.
It offers a splendid view over the green hills of the Pays de Duras.
Ideally located on the borders of the Lot and Garonne, the Dordogne and the Gironde, this beautiful home offers holidays in a bucolic atmosphere in an area suitable for a wide variety of tourist activities.
The most beautiful villages of French Périgord, major wineries classified, such as Margaux, Pauillac, Saint Julien, Saint Emilion, the beautiful city of Bordeaux are a few kilometers away fron the Castle.
